Remember when OnePlus halted the OnePlus 5′s Oreo update due to a bug? Well there’s some good news for OnePlus 5 owners this weekend, and that’s that their Android 8.0 update has started up again.

OnePlus says that it’s now pushing OxygenOS 5.0.1 to the OnePlus 5. This update is based on Android 8.0 Oreo and is largely similar to the halted OxygenOS 5.0 update, save for two additions:

  • Bug fixes for third-party camera applications
  • Fixed network issues for European operators

And in case you forgot what was in the OxygenOS 5.0 update that was halted, here’s what was included with that update and will also be in OxygenOS 5.0.1:

Updated to Android O (8.0)
Launcher

  • Optimizations for Shelf
  • Now you can upload your photo through Shot on OnePlus

Camera

  • New Camera UI design
  • Optimizations for photo quality
  • Added beauty effect for Portrait Mode

Gallery

  • Added “Places” tab for viewing photos on a map

Calculator

  • Added history feature

Clock

  • Added alarm calendar feature

System

  • Added Parallel Apps feature
  • New design for Quick Settings
  • New design for Lift up display
  • Added “Adaptive model” screen calibration
  • Optimizations for Wi-Fi
  • Optimizations for Battery Saver
  • Updated Android security patch to December

It’s good to see that OnePlus was able to quickly squash the bugs that were in the OxygenOS 5.0 update and get the new OxygenOS 5.0.1 update rolling. Of course, this is a staged update, so it might take a few days for 5.0.1 to appear on your OnePlus 5.
